Not a good day

International Women’s Day today and I feel nothing but deflated at the moment. Went to see my endocrinologist today and found out that my thyroid levels are a-ok which was nice. However, my ferritin levels are not. However (yet again), I did not realise this until I got back home and sat down to look…

Sunday Summary (Y17#44)

Sunday is finally here and I was supposed to go to the gym for a cardio session today but it is raining cats and dogs outside and I actually decided to stay home. Rather naughty I know, but I have had a few nights where I have slept badly so I figured a full resting…

A day off!

Raw juice in the pic above: 3 small pears, 1 red apple, 150 gram blueberries and some cinnamon sprinkled on top! It is a public holiday in Germany today celebrating the reunification of Germany, as such everything is closed so instead of heading to the gym I have had a full day of studying. Admittedly, this resting…

To listen to my body.

I caught a virus last weekend and have been trying to take it easy and relax allowing my immune system a fair chance to deal with the situation. I have tried my best to rest up properly even though all I want to do is be active. It is the toughest lesson to learn when…

Sunday Summary (Y17#36)

Back to Sunday Summaries, and back to updating on 365evermore. First things first, I have had a much needed break from writing here. During this time I have changed a bit in my diet and training and so far it has worked wonders. However, I have been a tad hesitant to update here about my…

Sighing just a little bit, smiling just a little bit.

Weeks, months pass by in a flash, or so it seems anyway. I have had yet another break from writing here, not because I do not train or cook or maintain whatever needs to be maintained outside of here. My reason for not being here, is mainly due to the battle I am currently fighting…

Sunday Confession | To push yourself or not.

This has been one crazy week, training wise I have been fine – better than fine actually as I had my best run to date on Thursday. Legs were in perfect symbiosis with the heart and lungs and I felt as if I could have gone on forever, and I almost did. Until I remembered that I…

Breakfast and Beetroot Juice.

Sunday, and I started my morning with a lovely breakfast and some beetroot juice. Must say that I had a rather lazy morning actually, much deserved after yesterdays kickboxing and static strength exercises. I love that kind of exhaustion that happens after a tough workout. I don’t think I ever feel so alive as I do…

If you cannot eat the rainbow, at least eat your veggies.

Simply cannot get enough of this dish at the moment. So ridiculously simple, so tremendously good. You have seen it all before, cherry tomatoes, yellow pepper, leek, courgette, aubergine, sun-dried tomatoes and once finished topped with some low-fat feta cheese. Heavenly good. I have spent a good amount of time at the gym today, focusing…
